Can you clarify what you are comparing here ?

The PCI slot / function in the libvirt XML should match, but the "bus"
number in libvirt XML is just a index referencing the <controller>
element in the libvirt XML.  So the "bus" number won't directly match
what's reported in the guest OS. If you want to correlate, you need
to look at the <address> on the <controller> to translate the libvirt
"bus" number.

I'm not sure, probably a question for Laine.
